NUIG Energy Night 26th January 2011

Presented the poster above on the SitePass project at the NUIG Energy night. Lots in interesting research work going on in NUIG. Some projects that caught my eye were: Web-Based Building Energy Usage Visualisation; Embodied Energy Analysis and Visualisation Tool; and the Creation of a Living Laboratory for Engineering at NUI Galway. Donall Dowd, our current Ph.D. student also presented a poster on our EPA-funded project 'The Development of A Waste Prevention Design Tool for Architects and Designers'.

Students as 'Creators' not just 'Consumers'

As part of the assessment strategy for the new Passive House Design and Construction module on the M.Sc. in Environmental Systems at the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, students will create a blog and submit blog entries based content covered in class. We will keep you updated on how this works out.
